This Weekend...

This weekend I...

...Spent a whole lot of time relaxing and laying in bed and doing a little pampering. I did some traveling for work this week and am busy every weekend for the foreseeable future so it was nice to get in some me time.
...Went up to my parent's house with my sister to help my mom pick a dress for my wedding, which meant we also got to hit our favorite local Mexican restaurant for lunch and do a little wedding crafting.
...Tried to go out for a casual dinner date with Jeff, only to discover that everywhere had an hour wait thanks to some hockey thing going on at Soldier Field. The one place that had openings was Gioco, which was a whole lot fancier than we were planning, but it ended up being the perfect evening.
...Went to Target and managed to only spend six dollars, which I didn't think was possible, and then ended up going back the next day and dropping a benjamin. All is right with the world.
...Went back to Burger Bar, and decided it's my new favorite neighborhood spot.  
...Finally managed to catch our first Best Picture nominated movie and watched Grand Budapest Hotel (which, if you have HBO, is available free on demand right now). I actually really liked it, more than other Wes Anderson films I've seen. Hopefully we can catch a few more of the Oscar nominated films before the big day.

I hope you had a good one!

    I went to Target this weekend and managed to only buy a bag of trail mix! It wasn't for lack of trying, we were looking for shoes, bedding, storage containers, makeup...came up totally empty, a very odd feeling. I joked that the universe would need to correct itself somehow -- guess my next trip will be a doozy :)

  2. Every single time I walk into Target I spend at least $100. It's ridiculous, but that store is just too amazing.


  3. Love relaxing weekends like this! And you only spent $6 at Target?! That has to be some sort of amazing record. :)


  4. Lazy weekends are just sometimes required! especially after a busy week.
